Hi Darren,

So sorry to hear about your dad. Unfortunately, medical mistakes seem to occur far too often and that makes losing someone even harder to bear. You'll find lots of support here and lots of people who understand what you're going through here. Your mom is lucky to have you to help support her. All you can do is try to support one another.

Talking helps and you'll always find someone who can sympathise here, so do keep posting.

Sending hugs...

Good morning Emz, Sandra yes your both right and thanks for the messages. I think once you have suffered a loss can you really understand what little support is out there. My dad suffered with lack of care and we are getting solicitor to have a look at the issues we raised against the gp, hospital and District nurses. If you find strength to complain please do it I got put on to a NHS Advocate who's like a breath of fresh air and also a charity called AVMA. I'm sorry to hear of you loss both. I would not want anyone to suffer this way that is what drives me. I thought I'd give the room a shot and nice to meet people who are in the same place if that makes sense.

Hi Dove.
I came here after losing my husband but also lost my parents  too cancer previousely.I hope you manage to find some clarity with the care aspect of your dad losing some-one is bad enough without having to persue issues like that. :hug: I,m sure your mum appreciates your support being left alone after losing your partner is a terrible thing and you are right it does bring into sharp focus whats important in life - take some time for your own grief too, as it is important to not try and put it aside in order to be "strong" for others.
